Good.

This FANTASY land that deferring rent indefinitely is somehow helping people.

Everything happening now reminds me of being in college and putting everything on a credit card.

Needless to say that didnít work out too well.

Like everything we canít predict, business travel will come back somewhere in the middle. Every corporate friend I have is eager to get back in the office at least sometimes. My SO use to travel twice a month is eager to at least fly sometimes and see her coworkers instead of on a screen.

I don't know about the normal business travelers but the wealthy ones are flying like crazy. NetJets has had to suspend 25hr flight card sales on all fleet types now because they can't keep up with the demand. And hiring plans for 2021 have gone from 100 to 300 pilots. FSI is training instructors as fast as they can get them (which isn't easy with current demand for pilots) to support the rush of initial ground schools.

Free money! Have an initial $2000 limit in college, that's $2000 you have to spend :)

Oh wait, you mean I have to pay this back?

Got my first credit card in college and immediately maxed it out. Probably paid 2 or 3 times that in interest before paying it off. Learned my lesson though, ever since then Iíve paid off my credit cards in full every month.

Personally I think travel was going to fall off regardless of this new delta variant. People that could took their one trip, then reality sunk back in. The bills always come due and a lot of people have taken a financial hit in the last year. Iím not so sure the industry is in the clear yet.

Same for me - got the stupid out of my system at an early age. Well, at least when it comes to my finances. :)

SoÖback on topic. Yesterday surpassed 2019 numbers. Of course 2019 numbers were probably day before Labor Day, but whatever.
